Giovanni Ribisi From Middle Men to Join Cast of Seth Macfarlane Comedy

Giovanni Ribisi from Middle Men is in talks to join the cast of yet another Seth Macfarlane movie.  In 2012 Ribisi played the creepy kidnapper in Ted, written, produced, and directed by Seth Macfarlane.  A Million Ways to Die in the West is another wacky comedy from the creator of Family Guy.  The movie is about a cowardly farmer played by Macfarlane, seeking the help of a gunslinger’s wife to help him win back the woman who left him and in turn develops feelings for her.  Giovanni Ribisi is slated to play Macfarlane’s character’s best friend Edward.  Edward is a simple shoe repairman who is dating a prostitute that won’t have sex with him, even though she is sleeping with everyone else.

Giovanni Ribisi from Middle Men was amazing and we can’t wait to see him in this film.  Ribisi, born in America in 1974, has a long list of film credits including Boiler Room, Gone in 60 Seconds, Lost in Translation, and had a recurring role on the hit television series Friends. If you like Seth Macfarlane and enjoyed Ted, hopefully A Million Ways to Die in the West will follow in its footsteps!  Giovanni is talented and his work is great in anything he does.
